Can You Take the Heat (For a Couple More Days)?
It was great while it lasted... Our break from the triple digit temps in the Los Angeles area is done for now, thanks to a hot air mass that's over the region today and for the next couple of days.
The National Weather Service says we're in for temps back up, especially in the valleys and mountains, where we'll get triple digits again.
It's going to "be warm and muggy, with temperatures running roughly 7-9 degrees above normal," said NWS meteorologist Curt Kaplan, according to City News Service, who added that temperatures would be closer to normal by Thursday, so--phew!--this isn't going to be a full-on heat wave.
To get an idea of what kind of a warm Tuesday we're in for, here are some expected highs today from around the greater L.A. area: 79 in Newport Beach; 82 in Avalon and at LAX; 89 on Mount Wilson; 92 in downtown L.A.; 94 in Long Beach; 96 in San Gabriel; 97 in Anaheim; 99 in Burbank and Pasadena; 102 in Palmdale; 103 in Saugus, Lancaster and Woodland Hills.
